  • The Amlogic S912  is a powerful SOC (“System On a Chip“) enabling 4K video in 10 bits -or even 12 bits Dolby Vision- encoded in h265 or V9 compression engines.

    The Rockchip RK3399 includes an hexacore processor in a Big.Little configuration. The concept behind the funny  “Big.Little” naming involves an asymmetry on their core processing technologies and speed: You will find a quad core A53 Arm processor, along a dual core A72 Arm processor inside the RK3399 chipset.

    The dualcore A72 is particularly capable, efficiently churning data up to a speed of 2.0 Ghz. The end balance is that the rockchip RK3399 is a bit faster and versatile than the S912 chipset.

    The Rockchip RK3399 includes a gigabit ethernet interface. This alone is a no-brainer win point for the RK3399, as you will only benefit from the speedier network access, particularly against a NAS containing your multimedia library, in glorouis 4K 10bit encoded format.

    The RK3399 chipset includes USB 3.0 type C compatibility, marking a clear winning point against the USB 2.0 interface the Amlogic S912 chipset has.

    On the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) the Rockchip chipset includes a MaLi T864 processor, while the S912 has a slower, less capable MaLi T830 processor.

    On the other hand, the Rockchip RK3399 is about to enter the market as a capable alternative…

    But just how capable is it ? We intend to find out by discussing their differences and salient points. A nice place to start our comparison may be their processing power …
